"Y" Stories

The YMCA of Black Hawk County has transformed many lives of members and visitors. With the aid of our surrounding populace, the Y has equipped many families, adults, and children to lead thriving, hopeful, and interconnected lives. Below are a few testimonies of lives we've touched.

 The Houselog Family "Y" story

“We enjoy many of the different services and programs offered through the Y. Both of our kids have been a part of the Early Learning Center (ELC) program and swim lessons offered here. This program has shaped our children into well-rounded individuals. My wife and I like to start our days here and work out before work. We utilize the treadmills here in the wintertime to help get us prepared for marathons. I really enjoy the welcoming atmosphere with the members and staff. The staff and teachers treat our family like they are their own. Each day we enter the Y the staff greet our kids with hugs and high fives. I'm so glad we found such a great place to belong to.”
